    Somebody I know has recently released a website with video charts where people submit their own video and others vote on which videos are the best. There is a cash prize for the winners.

    A few people have put up videos that have copyright music over the top of the video. Does anybody know what the legality on this is? The website itself isn't making money from this at the moment.

    Cheers guys.
